What is radon?

Radon is an odorless, invisible, radioactive gas naturally produced by uranium decay in rocks, water, and soil all over the country, including Greater Toronto. Like tobacco smoke and asbestos, radon gas is a cancer-causing substance, leading to approximately 3,300 deaths per year. And radon symptoms can worsen problems for people with asthma, respiratory problems, and compromised immune systems.

Facts about radon:

  • Homes with crawl spaces are at a higher risk for radon exposure
  • The Canadian guideline for radon in indoor air is 200 becquerels per cubic metre (Bq/m3)
  • Long-term low-level radon exposure is more harmful than short periods of high-level exposure
  • Radon symptoms include breathing problems, increased coughing, chest pain, hoarseness, and trouble swallowing
  • Radon levels are up to ten times higher during the winter
  • Radon gas is as cancer-causing as tobacco & asbestos

For these reasons, you should contact a mitigation specialist that understands this hazardous gas and can address your home's unique issues. As a member of National Radon Defense, a renowned network of professional mitigation companies, you can have confidence in our team of experienced specialists and our proven radon abatement services.

How to get rid of radon gas

Want to know how Maple Leaf Radon Defence reduces high levels of radon gas? We never install one-size-fits-all solutions. Read our step-by-step guide to radon mitigation.

  • We perform radon testing & provide a mitigation consultation

    Radon testing & mitigation consultation

    Before Maple Leaf Radon Defence installs a radon mitigation system, we have to assess your home to ensure you are getting a comprehensive solution that addresses the unique issues in your property.

    Our radon test & consultation:

    • First, we perform a radon test using a continuous radon detector. If radon levels exceed 200 Bq/m3, we develop a mitigation strategy specially designed for your property.
    • The next step is to conduct a structural analysis to see how we can design a system for your house, addressing radon potency and entryways, geographical concerns, property layout, building ventilation rate, and other factors unique to your situation.
    • Once the structural analysis is complete, you'll receive a design survey from our team, which allows you to voice your wants, needs, questions, or concerns.
  • We address the stack effect

    stack effect

    The stack effect refers to the natural movement of air and radon gas in your home. It moves upwards, similar to air moving up a smoke stack. This phenomenon pulls air up from your basement, crawl space, or lower levels, drawing it to your living space and out through the attic and upper levels.

    We depressurize the soil beneath your structure to prevent radon gas from moving through the house from the stack effect.

  • We redirect radon gas

    Next, a hole is drilled into the concrete foundation slab, basement floor, or surrounding earth to create a suction point (multiple suction points may be necessary). Then we connect a PVC pipe where radon gas travels. After, it either goes through the house or outside.

  • We vent radon gas away from the home

    Mitigation system

    We vent radon gas through a pipe, running it through a fan in the attic or along the top of the structure. From there, radon is directed outside and away from your home.

  • We seal radon entryways

    Sealing radon entryways

    To prevent radon gas from continuing to seep into your home, we seal all pathways, including cracks, gaps, and openings, with a urethane caulking compound.

  • We perform a final system analysis

    system analysis

    After installation, your technicians will perform a complete inspection, checking the fan and other key system details. This comprehensive inspection ensures the radon mitigation system functions according to current industry standards, providing the protection your family is counting on.

  • Radon testing using a continuous radon detector
